This is why Belconnen is so bad. People bag Tuggeranong, but this never happens there like it does in Belco. Belconnen also has Charnwood therefore it is the worst area to live in Canberra.

I bet you feel safe and smug because you live in an area with open carry chainsaw laws……. and not because Tuggeranong is where Belconnen people go to feel better about themselves. (“Could be worse, I could be a single mum of 10 from Greenway.”)

If Tuggeranong was an item of clothing, it would be a mis-shapen flouro school-cap with a flap on the back, attached to a smiling special kids head.

Mr Chainsaw is actually from Dickson.

Should never have been let across the border to cause trouble in the peaceful south. Must be something in the water North of the lake.

But he had to travel south to work there and it is the Chainsaw district now. Knowing the gent on question, I am just happy he was up, out and about doing things.

Tuggeranong messes with your mind, so many single mums there that one has to wonder if there is a central father figure patrolling the bus-stops in a white commodore in his best, going out tracksuit looking to expand his gene pool. It’s no wonder Centrelink and Human serices are based there.

People even speak slower there because when asked they usually say from down south because its hard for them to say Tuggeranong fast.

When I read this piece I immediately thought, I am glad I live in Tuggeranong where it is safe. From the comments here, clearly I am not the only one! You know how people from interstate bag ‘Canberra’ in ignorance, having never lived here? Tuggeranong is like that in micro – Canberrans love to bag Tuggers, and Tuggers-ites just think, good – stay away, so glad those ignorant people don’t live in Tuggeranong!

Can we just agree that they are both awful?

Yes. The only place worse is the inner north, which is full of people desperately trying to be “alternative,” and where you can’t hear yourself think above the thunder of people complaining about not being able to buy a house.

It’s funny because it’s true.

The villians in Tuggers throw their victims into the lake.

His crime was probably to ask some repdoid to put his cigarette out.

If you ask me, both areas are sh!tholes, but Tuggeranong has more bogans.

No way! The Massey’s of Belconnen more than make up for the rabble of Chisolm and Richardson.

Most descriptive sledging I have ever read. Love your work.

I like Tuggeranong, but Belconnen really does frighten me. Too many neanderthals in too tight a space.

I sense the insecurity is strong in this one.
